2015 Petit Verdot
Our 2015 Petit Verdot has a dense octopus ink, maroon color. Gardenias, violets, cascade berry jam, Mexican chocolate, licorice, cedar and clove aromas present themselves. Vibrant black fruits explode on a smooth, full-bodied palate containing chewy, dusty tannins and a sweet, jam-like textured finish. This bold wine is ready to drink now and has an extended ageing window of 10 years.
100% Petit Verdot. 60% Summit View Vineyard, 40% Kirsten Rose Vineyard, Columbia Valley AVA.

Careful blending of wine lots from Walla Walla AVA and Claar Estate Vineyards provides a wine with richness and character that resembles that of the highest quality wines from Washington State.
